The Little Engine that Could ... ROCK!

Margot has learned the names of a bunch of her books and now tells us what she'd like to read. These range from the obvious, "hop" for Hop on Pop, to the funny, "Go frog, Go" for "Go Dog Go" (made all the better by the fact that she knows the word "dog" and says "dog" whenever we open the book), to the oblique, "quack" for "Moo, Baa, La La La". My favorite of all, however, comes from her recent love affair with "The Little Engine that Could" which she requests multiple times a day. Margot has taken to calling the book by its catch phrase "I think I can" which she pronounces Chaka Kahn.

A little something special will be lost in our lives when she learns how to pronounce that correctly.
